On the day of the event, the weather was unfavorable with occasional snow, but many international students and Fukuoka city citizens participated in the event, and we were able to finish the event safely.
After watching the special exhibition “Emotional Asia” at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, we enjoyed cookies and drinks while watching a welcome performance (Course A: Irish harp, Course B: Chinese dance, Course C: Buzen Toubaru Kagura).
After that, each team departed for a walking quiz rally in the old town area of Hakata, and at the end, they checked their answers with little tidbits related to the quiz at the Fukuoka City International Center.
Total numbers who joined the event: 85 people (61 international students and 24 Japanese citizens)
